In the audio program, the journalist explains how this idea that the police can and should kill ended up becoming the political agenda of Jair Bolsonaro – a policy of death that he defended in the tribune of the Chamber of Deputies. A place also used to defend, for example, the ex-policeman Adriano Nóbrega, one of the biggest hired assassins in Rio de Janeiro.
In the first episode, the journalist brings an X-ray of the police officers that the clan awarded medals from the city and state of Rio over 20 years. This photo, full of honorees, has at least 75 police officers who have responded to charges for corruption, money laundering, misrepresentation and murder.
The closeness of the clan with Adriano Nóbrega is the theme of the second episode: a relationship reinforced by Fabrício Queiroz, involved in the cracking scheme and which was highlighted in the first season of the podcast. In addition to honoring Adriano, Jair Bolsonaro even visited him in jail. Those who follow the podcast will be able to hear a rare recording of Adriano’s voice obtained exclusively.
Episode three delves into the story of how Flávio and Jair Bolsonaro wanted to differentiate between militiamen while maintaining relationships with Adriano Nóbrega, who was growing up in organized crime. Juliana Dal Piva draws a profile with unpublished data on both the militia member and his widow, Julia Lotufo.
In the fourth episode is the complete story of the theft of Jair Bolsonaro’s motorcycle, a crime that mobilized part of the police in Rio, and how it symbolized various problems of public security.
The first season of the podcast, called “A Vida Secreta de Jair”, brought revelations about the direct involvement of the President of the Republic in the illegal scheme of delivering salaries to advisors when he exercised consecutive terms as a federal deputy. The show launched in June 2021, and in August 2022, a bonus episode brought updates on the investigations into the case.
